GREAT News for all of us who follow Tania Hershman through her blog. She’s on the Frank O’Connor Award long list with her collection of shorts, The White Road and other Stories published by Salt Modern Fiction. Being on ANY list that highlights quality writing is an honor…and an indicator that an author is being read, recognized, and appreciated. And what great company she’s keeping: Mary Gaistskill, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Alex Keegan to name just a few of the 57!
You can find the Long List at The Short Review. And that’s the other reason that Tania can be appreciated, not just for being an excellent writer, but for promoting short fiction at The Short REVIEW, an online e-zine dedicated to short fiction.
Thank you, Gay, this is very kind of you! It’s a thrill, to be alongside all of these writers, it’s an astonishing list, all the Frank O’Connor longlists from the past few years are great places to start if you want to find short story collections to read.
PS Sorry I haven’t written a blog for EDF yet, a bit distracted!
